Ric Edelman explains why the world of money is not nearly as complicated as people want you to believe.
You go through K through 12 not a single class on money. Your parents never told you anything about money. Most kids don’t go to any college classes on money, and when you get into the workplace your employer is not going to teach you anything about money either.
So where do people learn about money? Through experience. And experience as we know is a very expensive teacher. So much better to learn about money as you’re engaging in education. Here’s the good news: the world of money is not nearly as complicated as everybody wants you to believe it is. The people who are trying to convince you that money is complicated that it’s too difficult for you to understand are the people who are trying to sell you stuff.
